Alexander McQueen is my favorite designer, and one of my biggest sources of inspiration. Through his collection of beauty, science, and disturbance, McQueen was one of the great minds that succeeded in making fashion perhaps the most powerful form of art.
The video below shows McQueen’s masterpiece finale for his Spring/Summer 1999 showcase with model Shalom Harlow.

Greetings, all! And to my U.S. readers, I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and ate plenty of dead bird in my honor – since I’m a vegetarian, but I certainly made up for it with plenty of string beans, pumpkin cheesecake, and mashed potaters. Thanksgiving is not just about Thanks…but also Giving, which is exactly what this Post Turkey post is about.
This year has treated me so well in every aspect of my life: with my life partnership, my blogging career, and the amazing connections I’ve made…and so far, 2012 is ALREADY looking pretty amazing and I continue to have faith with every little step along the way. So from the bottom of my heart, thank you to all of you who have supported and continue to support my blogging. And for the “Giving” section of this post, I’m hoping to introduce you to your new favorite boutique (it’s certainly MY favorite): Nasty Gal (<- link!)
Nasty Gal is by far my most FAVORITE shop to lurk when I’m on my computer. I’m not a big fan of going to stores and waiting in line to try on clothes. And Nasty Gal seems to combine all of my top-pick stores and styles into one big online boutique of awesomeness.
Everything I love: faux fur, laid back, sexy, sheer, short, SHOES! If you’re gonna pick one day out of the year to do shopping, TODAY is the day. So while you’re sitting there thinking it over…I’m already stocking up my digital shopping cart. Happy Friday, everyone!
